making perfect playdoh at home…

ever since i learned how, i have been making playdoh at home.

the process and the product are BOTH entertaining and somehow, i find it to be more fun to create with playdoh that i have made myself…

this recipe makes enough for two children; simply double the amounts if you happen to have a full house!

adding glitter and food coloring is always a great option too. if you don’t have food coloring; a couple drops of paint will also do the trick…


  • 1.5 cups flour
  • ½ cup salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • embellishments


  • mix all the ingredients together and knead well
  • add more water or flour as necessary
  • embellishments are up to you- glitter, food coloring, child-friendly paints
    • all work great and are safe for children of all ages (especially for younger children who sometimes want to see how their playdoh tastes!!)
